The Fallen Leaf!

The soul weeps in anguish

falls the leaf from the branch

   shockingly the flower is aghast

“ Why Thou! You descend and collapse…

Its still time before  death befalls….


“ tis the drop of the curse,

The curse of the loved one,

for whence I should

separate from the branch of life…


It withers my vibrant color

burns the freshness and vigor

lest I need to shrivel and die

When the curse of love transpires!


“Alas, you are the one

Who never grumbled whether ignored

 nor stumbled in a storm

walked with a word of joy,

Spreading happiness to every passer –by”.


Its my fault ,O! loved one!

The essence of my immaculateness

Ne’er reached the core of  thy  heart

I fail and now fall apart!

    OMG I didn’t get the real weight of the poem with out the picture of the drip! Doesn’t it get exhausting?

    You know ma’am, few months back too I used to praise your work, but now, having learnt some more, I understand that every line has a depth of its own. It’s really touching, every words setting a picture in your mind. Great!
